The article is the fourth part of a series analysing the lexicographical presence of Italian in Hungarian language: after names of persons places and institutions the Author focuses now on trade marks. She shows the specialities of this sector of the lexicon: the intentions of marketing, the lexicalization process and the high speed of changes. She provides a large range of examples, cathegorized by a linguistical tipology: abbreviations, derived and composed names, sintagmatical and phrasal ones.

This paper proposes an explanation of the apparent scope inversion attested in sentences pronounced with a rise fall intonation contour. It argues that a left-peripheral quantifier pronounced with a (fall-)rise is in topic position (Spec,TopP). A topic phrase must refer to an individual already present in the domain of discourse-that which will be predicated about in the sentence. Non-individual-denoting expressions, among them quantifiers, can also be made suitable for the topic role if they are assumed to denote a property which the rest of the sentence predicates some higher-order property about. A quantifier functioning as a contrastive topic denotes a property of plural individuals, and its apparent narrow scope arises from the fact that it is considered to be a predicate over a variable inherent in the lexical representation of the verb.
